Jason is determined to help a grieving friend find a lost ally, no matter the danger and no matter the cost. However, things aren’t as they seem when the opportunity for an unexpected betrayal arises… leading to the reveal of a NEW RANGER!

Story — 5 out of 5: There was a lot to like here. Journey has gotten much older while the Rangers were on Earth, and now she and Zack are having the classic father/teenage daughter type arguments. Based on Kevor’s previous appearance, Zack is valid in trying to keep Journey away from him. But, while they were gone, Kevor also has matured, and is a lot more decent than Zack knows. The bad guys have finally arrived after being seemingly forgotten, and look poised to cause some major problems in Safehaven. And, while I don’t like what Andros is doing, I find myself interested in seeing where his story goes, and how they will redeem him in time for Power Rangers in Space. I was also surprised that the black suit is just a costume/uniform, and that he isn’t morphed. As for the conclusion, I am looking forward to what happens with Zhane as well. Based on Andros working with him here, I’m guessing the Death Ranger has possessed Zhane, which, considering why he was on ice in the first place, should be a problem. I wonder if Andros knows this, or if he thinks Zhane has been revived.

Art — 5 out of 5: I have gone on before about how much I like Marco Renna’s art. This issues has done nothing to change that. It’s all clean, crisp, dynamic, and easy to follow.

Overall — 5 out of 5: This was a fabulous issue to read, and I cannot wait to see what next issue brings. Highly recommened!
